eeeekk, an update, and a recipe

The eeeekk....

The Vanilla Tulip is featuring my blog this weekend, since I'm a new sponsor!  She posted a short little bio that (I hope) sums up the essence of This Vintage Grove.  It's like seeing my name in big, shiny lights.  I'm sorta giddy.

The update.... 

Do you remember the ironing board cover giveaway?  Prepare yourself for the unveiling.....

After hitting up two stores for the perfect fabric, Schlager whipped it up yesterday!  Cathy, we hope you love it.  You will receive it this week!

If you wanna know how to d.i.y. head over to Spray Paint and a Staple Gun!!

The recipe....

And lastly, for all of you who are searching the world over for the perfect pumpkin muffin....

I've found it (via Pinterest).

After trying four different recipes, this one is IT. 

Maybe it's the streusel.

Could be the cream cheese filling.


Cute muffin liners never hurt either.

Pumpkin should be enjoyed year round people.


  1. I'm trying this muffin. The last few I've made have disappointed. Guess I'll continue using my K-Mart ironing board cover. And congrats on your comes the fortune. Have a great Sunday -- maybe you'll get a snow day tomorrow.

    1. Tell me what you think of the muffins!!!! You know I'm doing my snow dance. Oh, and you never know when the ironing board cover fairy will strike!!!

  2. No snow day, Jan! We're too close to summer. In the low 60's for school days left. Danavee- I think I NEED to try one of those muffins when I drop off the cover today!

  3. Gorgeous ironing board cover. Beautiful choice on the fabric.
    Thank U 4 the recipe.
    No snow here in Texas but it is down to freezing with chance of rain , snow and sleet tonight and into tomorrow. :{ I hate the cold.

    1. Thank you! We thought it was fun and cheerful!

      I hope you enjoy the muffins! I swear they are the best.

  4. Congrats on the fame!! I can't wait to try out that muffin recipe! Mmmmm!! I made banana bread today!!! :)

  5. Oh what a fun cheery print! I love it! :) If we have school tomorrow and I'm not working, I will most likely be dropping off the girls in the morning with a bucketload of Girl Scout cookies! I'll have to stop by your room to pick it up (if that's ok with you!)!! :)

    I know the feeling about seeing your name in big, shiny lights. I, too, have felt giddy lately seeing my articles/name on :) Congrats on being featured, very fun!

    1. I'm so glad you like it!!! I got cash today thinking those cookies would be delivered this week!

  7. Ummm I think I'm going to need to make these muffins this week!!!!!! delish!!!

  8. I love that ironing board cover! I want a cute one like that. I also like the recipe that you shared. I agree - pumpkin should be enjoyed all year long, not just during the Fall.
